Kendall Marshall impressive, but Nolan Smith simply better
So much for the idea that Kendall Marshall and Harrison Barnes would have a negative reaction to the Cameron Indoor Stadium experience. That theory was blown to bits in the first half as UNC opened up a 16-point lead over Duke thanks in large part to their impressive starts. Watching Marshall carve up the Blue Devils on their home court early on gave fans happy flashbacks of Ray Felton and Ty Lawson.
UNC adds Durham linebacker to class
North Carolina made its second strike of the 2007 football recruiting year yesterday, receiving a commitment from Jonathan Smith, a linebacker from Durham. Smith is a 6-3, 200-pound junior at Hillside High School where he plays for Coach Ray Harrison. Nebraska also offered Smith a scholarship after its coaches watched a highlight tape of Smith's play that Harrison put together.
